This place is a little hidden gem but it seriously has the BEST doughnuts EVER! For better selection, the earlier the better.

Vandal Doughnuts is a relative newcomer to the Halifax foodie scene, but has already made quite the splash locally and nationally for its hip, trendy doughnuts. Indeed, unlike your typical doughnut shop like, say, Tim Hortons, or even some other local bakery, Vandals takes our calorie-filled treats into the social and political sphere: Want to eat those tasty Tide Pods? Eat them in doughnut form! Want to celebrate April 20th? Have a “blunt!” Want to show President Donald Trump how much you love him? Have a “kinky Trump” doughnut! In short, Vandals uses these sweet treats to educate and create awareness of some hot button issues for the times . . . and best of all? It’s done in a fun, humorous way. Who would’ve thought you could take donuts beyond mere sprinkles and infuse them with deep cultural meaning.

So, yes, Vandal Doughnuts is local, trendy, unique and fun. Thanks to their location next to Gus’ Pub, the atmosphere within the small shop is casual and upbeat – something that totally suits the eclectic offerings behind the tasteful display case. When my partner and I visited, Vandals was celebrating 420 with special “pot themed” doughnuts. I found my partner’s remarks to be rather humorous as we looked at the various and varied offerings: “They’re sure into their pot theme here. . .” (she didn’t recognize that it was done in celebration of “420” haha). In any event, we got a small assortment of doughnut treats, including “the munchies,” the “blunt” and the “Bob Marley” (which looked excellent, by the way). We enjoyed our bounty back at the hotel!

FOOD: 4.5/5
SERVICE: 4/5
VALUE: 5/5
RECOMMENDATION: If you like trendy, unique doughnuts – some that go beyond standard fare – then you simply must give Vandal a try. Not only do the doughnuts look pretty, but they taste great, too! We were glad we stumbled upon this little shop and would gladly return when next in Halifax! Recommended!

Absolutely outstanding!
Doughnuts were fresh & unique.
The prices were as expected for fresh made donuts around $2. I tried three kinds all were really good!
The restaurant is strange as it is half a pub which serves just beer & generally dark and very empty mid day. The other half is the doughnut shop which is bright & packed with people.
The doughnuts without a doubt were some of the best I’ve ever had!
I’ll be back!

Though it is a tiny bit out of the downtown core it is worth the trip! Fun friendly and focused on donuts, we tried 8 different types (no calories on vacation) and loved every single one!
